The driver/guide was nice. Our luggage was missing when we arrived in Houston. Since this was a private tour, the driver/guide took us to Ross and a gift shop to buy necessary clothes. Sightseeing tour part was fun, too. Again, this was a private tour, so we were able to ride a pedal boat. We could request what we wanted to do. That was the best part.
